Duly enjoyed. Thanks for posting!

Some rather good stuff on this chap's website. Click the "guano" link for a photo essay on labourers in Peru's revived guano industry.

Was passing the Hidden Lane Gallery on Argyle Street this morning and popped in to see the Margaret Watkins exhibition. She was an American photographer who moved to Glasgow in 1929 (if memory serves) and lived in total obscurity over here, to the point that nobody even knew she was a photographer until after she died and her collection was found.

The exhibition that's on display at the moment (and should stay on display till the end of Jan) is of her work from Paris in 1931. That said, there's some great prints on sale from around Glasgow too. Well worth a look! It'll definitely be right up a few people's street I reckon.

I bought one of the prints from the second exhibition, and was very sorry I missed the first. I'll definitely be going along.

This is the high tide mark left by a million cubic metres of corrosive sludge that burst the banks of an industrial reservoir in Ajka, Hungary. The aftermath was recorded by Spanish photographer Palíndromo Mészáros in his project called "The Line"

Like they have been drowned in blood. Very evocative.

I wouldn't at all mind seeing a lot more of those.

Cheers for posting that Dexter.

There are a fair number on this slideshow by the photographer.

A lot of the photos probably wouldn't be taken today.

Now that's an exhibition I must see. And one serious sound system, there.
